Chapter 14. Secure Reviewing and Reporting > Modifying the Document’s Layers

Modifying the Document’s Layers

What? Layers? Where did they come from? The fact is that adding fields and stamps may add a hidden layer to the document as in this project. If you have experimented with replacing pages in a document (as in Chapter 2’s project), you have worked with Acrobat layers. Performing an operation such as replacing a page removes the underlying page content and replaces it with a specified page. Any objects you add in Acrobat, such as fields or footers, are retained and are “floating” on their own layer. You don’t see the content added to a file in the Layers pane, the way you would with a layered document you create in a program like Microsoft Visio, but it’s there!

When you certify a document, Acrobat evaluates its content and structure and displays a warning for any features that may compromise the integrity of your work. Layers will trigger such a warning. And when a recipient opens the file, they’ll see the warning too. Erin is afraid the warning will throw the others off, so she decides to flatten the file first.
